Message from the Chair:

I am pleased to endorse the revised Multi-Agency Policy and Procedures for Adult Safeguarding in Trafford.

Adult safeguarding is everyone’s concern, and when safeguarding concerns arise, it is critical that we all know what we need to do. This policy and procedures will help ensure that we keep the person at risk at the centre of all we do. They will support staff who work with vulnerable people to provide the best service they can, and they will assure everyone in Trafford that all safeguarding concerns will be responded to in a professional and timely way, and so will help protect vulnerable members of our community.

I wish to thank all those who have worked on revising these procedures, along with all the staff who work so hard when faced with issues of adult abuse, whose commitment and enthusiasm ensures adult abuse remains a key priority for all agencies across Trafford.

Mrs Maureen Noble
Independent Chair of Trafford Strategic Safeguarding Board
